I have been actively planning our next trip to Orlando = Disney WORLD!! I know this time we are staying off property (not in a Disney Resort Hotel). We are working on our OutSide Disney section, and are planning may fun activities to share with all of you.
So that being said, I have been actively searching for the perfect hotel for a family of 4 (2 are staying in school for the trip), this is the “normal” family to vacation in the Sunshine State. My searching has also been bargain hunting, finding the best “bang” for our buck, so to speak! I started researching the Timeshare/Hotel options! I have actually never been to a Timeshare or been to a hard sell meeting for a Timeshare. I have friends and family who own them and rave about them, and I also know many who say to run away and stay far away. My husband is not easily sold on anything! Ever. So I really have no concerns about sitting through a 2 hour sell on their wonderful property and all they offer and then have them try and talk us into buying in. My husband will not and has never thought of owning a Timeshare. All that being said, the deals are AMAZING!! I am a big respecter of time, but if I have to sit for 2 hours and hear about a Timeshare and after all that is done I get an amazing deal on a hotel and maybe some cheap tickets to Disney World, I AM IN!
Here is a great example of the deal we are thinking about using.
Two “Touch of Magic” Walt Disney World® Resort Tickets plus 4 days and 3 nights at a Luxurious Two or Three Bedroom Villa at the Beautiful Palisades Resort Orlando From Only$435.00 per family.
Breaking this down: 4 days, 3 nights in Palisades Resort 2-3 bedroom condos, 2 2 day “Touch Of Magic” Disney Tickets.
In comparison, 2 2 Day tickets purchased from Disney’s Ticket Page are $336.00
Hello…$99 more and you have a very well rated 2 bedroom condo!
The Palisades Resort offers many amenities for their guests
•Luxurious one, two and three bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens and private balconies
•Lush tropical surroundings amongst an abundance of Florida wildlife
•Private outdoor pool
•Meeting rooms (1400 sq/feet)
•Free high speed internet access
•Convenient to Walt Disney World® Resort, Universal Orlando®, Sea World®, Animal Kingdom and The Orlando International Airport
I am excited to check out the Movie theater! I know my children will love it!
I will be contacting the Timeshare/Hotel shortly to find out what happens to our children while we are whisked away to a 2 hour sales presentation. If you read the fine print at the bottom of the webpage, it explains that if you do not go to the 2 hour sales presentation and fail to meet the requirements you will pay FULL PRICE for the package deal.
I am excited about the 2 bedroom condo the Palisades Resort offers. Here are some pictures from their website.
I have read on Trip Advisor about how this bed layout has been a bit dangerous and not very comfortable, but I am willing to give it a try, separate entry to the private balcony.
Separate bedroom for the children sounds like a vacation dream!
Full well stocked kitchen!
This Disneyfreak is excited to spend time trying out a new Orlando experience and sharing it with all of you!
